Quit Smoking Contest

If your New Year's Resolution to quit or cut back on cigarettes has already gone up in smoke, the Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit is recommending a contest for you.

The Wouldurather contest is open to people in Ontario between the ages of 18 to 29 years who regularly smoke, smoke socially, have stopped smoking or never smoked in their lives.

For motivation, participants can win cash prizes instead of smoking.

There are four contest categories to enter, with prize monies ranging from $250 to $2,500.

Quit For Good, Keep The Count, Party Without The Smoke and Don't Start and Win.

Those wishing to participate must register by January 27th at www.wouldurather.ca.

The contest begins on the 28th and runs for six weeks.
